Miller Harris – From Concrete to Flowers

Miller Harris

I’ve long been a fan of Miller Harris perfume, to me the name conjures the distinct and complicated notes of a real perfume, as if the perfume itself is telling a story from where it came. Lyn Harris has been working in the fragrance industry for more than twenty years and founded Miller Harris in … Continue reading

London Fashion Week – Insider Beauty Tips


London Fashion Week is over for another season and while I may have repetitive strain injury from working a multitude of social media platforms, and feet that have the gnarly look of walking around in heels over London’s cobbled streets for five days, I’m happy to report my ‘made-up’ face survived the flash bulbs, queues … Continue reading

I like to think I’m fairly in the know about new technology, early adopter to this, first to get that, but when it comes to skincare I’m way behind the curve.

For the most part of my misspent youth I revolted against skincare regimes in favour of a hot muslin cloth and a … Continue reading

Braun Satin Hair 7 – An Iconic Brush


I am blessed with the gift of unruly hair.  Sometimes its curly, sometimes I tame it into some sort of submission and it stays straight for a while, until it decides to ping free from its straight shackles and form some kind of wiry curl. Mornings are always interesting in our house, Mr B says … Continue reading
